    Textual Practices in Crafting Bioethics Cases.B. Hurwitz - 2012 - Journal of Bioethical Inquiry 9 (4):395-401.

    Geography is experiencing a 'moral turn' in its research interests and practices. There is also a flourishing interest in animal geographies that intersects this turn, and is concurrent with wider scholarly efforts to reincorporate animals and nature” into our ethical and social theories. This article intervenes in a dispute between Michael Dear and Richard Symanski.
